Cloudera shakes off Hortonworks fixation, realises AWS was the big baddie all along

Cloudera and former open-source database rival Hortonworks may have merged in a defensive manoeuvre but CEO Tom Reilly seems to have spied a bigger existential threat – AWS. The boss man said this while adding meat to the bones of his enterprise data cloud (EDC) strategy on a conference call with analysts last night, confirming the Cloudera Data Platform (CDP) running on public clouds will debut in the “next two quarters”.

A private cloud version is planned for “later in the year”, Reilly confirmed. EDC will incorporate “multiple analytic functions” on the same data, be “secure and compliant”, and be open to “avoid vendor lock-in”. At least that’s the aim. The initial release of CDP, Cloudera said, will provide data warehousing and machine learning as a “native cloud service” via one control panel to manage the infrastructure, data and workloads across hybrid and multi-cloud installations.
